LGB Alliance. the new transphibic star in the list of LGBT especially T-phobic organisations is asking 12 questions and non of them related to the claim:

Quote

 “We are pro-LGB and we are advocating for LGB rights,”

 

Well, we get it! They don't like trans people, but why do they need to do harm?

 

I don't know if you have read that article - those of you who are not from UK or Europe, but it reached me here, in the forgotten Bulgaria and I was like "Hm, okay! Another battlefield! More complexed people who we don't want to fight, but here they are!!!"...

 

So, here is what they are and what they are asking. I don't have a lot lesbians and gay friends so this here is not helping me a lot. We already have some issues in here - LGB against T... so it's hurtful, hurtful for all of us!

The gay community has a history of having difficulty accepting the trans. community.  At the same time many do support us.  Unfortunately others would rather we fade into the closet again.  I have dear gay and lesbian friends who accept me as myself but i also know others who don't.  Fortunately there seem to be more of the accepting ones.  Thea almost sounds like the straight community.  Most accept but a few simply do not.  I can't control that so i try to let it go, hoping that they can see me as a good person and not a threat.

 

Hugs,

The internet has made it extremely easy for the small minority of trouble makers in society to publicise themselves.  These people claim to have many more supporters than they probably have.  The average person, gay or straight, probably doesn't even think about trans people, and certainly has no strong views about them.

 

This hate group is probably generating as much of a negative image of LGB people as it is of trans people.

Exactly, the article makes sense of some static I was getting about "Gay leaders who think Trans people should go their own way." I read his little manifesto and he was so very full of equine excrement. At its best I feel like the LGBTQ+ movement is about inclusion. That's really all I want. I'd like to sit at the big table and have the same rights as everyone else. I'd also like everyone that isn't me to join us. Of course, I might be biased. I identify as L and T so I'm not even sure how that would work. Self-loathing maybe? I've been there. I'm not going back.

 

There's a push right now to subdivide ourselves into smaller and smaller groups. I suspect it's largely manufactured by groups that would prefer to keep the dissenting voices small and powerless. Unfortunately, those groups own media outlets. All we can really do about that is push to come together in spite of them.

 

Hugs!

A personal view but really, except for being a similar minority group exactly how similar are we to the gay community? In my opinion we are not at all. It has always been stated that sex and gender are different things. My view is that there is some corealation but that would need extensive research.  I won't elaborate further as I know it is a hot subject but just my opinion.

 

To me it's not to me an us against them at all, it is for the world living in harmony. If we are banded together we should help each other.

      Agree that jeans work well for you  Alexi.  Sweater too.  Whichever you feel personally more confident with when it's time to go.  I think you got this. Good luck with the interview!

    • Susan R
      @Alex C   Just be yourself and you’ll do just fine. I personally like the outfit on bottom but I can’t see what you’re wearing below the blue sweater but the color suits you. The skinny jeans look good but it sort of depends on the job you’re taking. These are casual looks but ok for some job interviews.  I wish you the very best and hope that you are successful in getting this position.   My Best, Susan R🌷

      Thanks everyone! I told my mom and she didn't have much of anything nice to say. My dad was pretty good about it though. I'm really loving these forums!! 💞😁

      Hi Natasha, welcome to the forum. Your journey sounds very familiar to me and many others posting here as VIcky pointed out.  As you by now realize, these feelings don’t go away all by themself. Dealing with it head on works so much better than burying everything.  Eventually, the issues just show up unannounced at the worst possible time.  The cycle is the only thing predictable about it. We’re here to help in any way we can.  Until you can get in to see a therapist which likely won’t be right away, feel free to get plenty of very helpful advice here. You might even meet a few new friends along the way. Thank you for your candid introduction.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I have my 1st job interview 2mor as Alex the transgender. I am bit nervous I never not been alex the guy before. I not using a wig ,very natural make up, no dress or heels . I am going through some outfits and this is one a choice. would like some feed back. But I understand that I am not the most popular one on this site. To tell the truth I don't like chat rooms and this the only one I belong too. Heck, I don't even use facebook that much. But I would really appreciate some feed back here so I don't make a complete fool of myself.I am submit one with out a wig and one with just in case
    • Zeda
      Ouch Sometimes I... <__< >__> sometimes I wear boxers   (Don't laugh, they are surprisingly comfy when I'm at home! It confuses the heck out of my spouse though XD )
    • Zeda
      Oh, absolutely. My spouse has been a rock in my life (really, we've been each other's) and has protected me when I couldn't muster up the strength our courage to protect myself.    Zay-Duh is how I pronounce it, but people can call me Ze for short, or if they are practicing non-binary pronouns. If that is still tough, I also accept Your Highness. And yup, I think this is my fourth account over the years (2008/2009, then 2010, then 2017, and now).  By the way, I looked up that word, "propitious," and I am still not sure what it means ^^' Thanks, it's a French bastardization of the Greek letter zeta Hi, thank you! I saw you mentioned my old account in a happy birthday post a few years ago, so thank you! (and it was a low-stress birthdy, btw!) Hi Yeah, I'm just that cool 😎 Honestly, it's really cool that there are still a lot of familiar faces here, like Vicky and Carolyn (and JJ, though it looks like he isn't very active these days).

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Natasha.  I encourage you to look around at the various forums and post wherever you like, and ask any questions that come to mind.  You'll find friendship and understanding here.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      I meant trans as in transgender.

      I’m sorry to hear that I hope they will let you go to an outside consultant. I could only imagine how antsy your getting i would be well past that.  I looked at planned parenthood but they have pretty much outlawed them in the state of Missouri. So I’m stuck calling around to find a endocrinologist that’s taking patients. Then hopefully they take insurance. Problem is there I have my insurance with the union I’m in and I really don’t want to out myself to them because most likely I will be outed to my employer.
